Overall it's pretty good

I think this app has a very broad and diverse amount of historical events that it displays. I always learn a lot, and I'm very appreciative of its mix of sports, politics, arts, etc.

However, I do feel there are some major gaps. For instance, I haven't seen any events after 2014. It's 2017, and lots of major events (especially celebrity deaths) have occurred in the last two years that are not included on the app. Secondly, pop culture history is often not included. For example, major release dates of movies and music albums that have been considered by many sources to be iconic aren't included. A movie like The Godfather or Singing in the Rain should have mention, and I've just never seen those dates, but easily found them on Wikipedia.

It's impossible to include all historical information, and I get that, but I'm hoping the developers continue to update it, as history happens every day.

I'd Give it a 4 1/2 star rating, overall awesome history

Allow customization to your history. I like American history because im american Good quotes of history, needs to be organized a little better. A few tweaks here and there and I'd give it a 5 star rating.
This app is great for history magnets. Give it a better search option for all countries and in depth details on that day and hours(if available) of how it played out.
Anywhere from early morning in 1775 during the American Revolution War with Britain all the way to Landing on Normady Beach on D-DAY. But overall very useful.

Best in class

This app is very well developed, rich experience, interesting, and fun to use. Quantity and quality content. It offers great content in a way that uses what iOS has to offer. Unlike other history of the day apps, it’s not simple one sentence items in lists with WikiLinks. You can save items and share too.

I’m not too sure how up to date or complete the content is so I keep similar apps to check that I’m not missing things. But this is the app I spend time in. I especially like the Categories section. Wide range of topics and information. Very cool!
